As Joash continues to talk more and more clearly, some of the things he says are really funny. Here are a few of our recent favorite quotes.
The other day, Joash had a new treat at snack time, marshmallows.
We took Joash swimming yesterday. The pool has a few different toys and things for kids to play with while swimming. One item is a whale that flat and sinks to the bottom of the pool. We showed it to Joash, who said it was a dolphin. Then while inspecting it, he flipped it over the back side, which is a black speckly pattern and declared, "Dirty dolphin." We then asked him what colour the other side was. Joash looked at it, saying, "hmm.." Then he touched it with his hand, closed his eyes and said, "red" with a confident nod of his head. It was red and we both thought his process was a bit funny.
After swimming, Wilbert was drying Joash off, and Joash kept saying, "yogurt on finger. Right here. Yogurt." Wilbert thought it was just a piece of lint from the towel or something. When Joash showed me, I saw that his finger tips had become all wrinkly and pruney, so I think he really did think he had yogurt on his finger.
And finally this morning Joash told me he was, "going to drive big tractor with farmer to Michigan." I said, "Okay," and then Joash stopped pushing his tractor and came to by me and said, "Need jacket on." I am glad he remembered he need to put on his jacket before he goes outside. But, since it was raining, I didn't let him start the drive to Michigan today.
